Telkom’s new website may look pretty, but some of the company’s clients are complaining that its usability has suffered.

Most recently, a customer said he’s found there is confusion around which numbers to call if you have line faults.

The Telkom website now features three portals: personal, home, and business – each of which lists different numbers.

Some of the numbers give a “number not in service” message, while others give a single tone or refer you to numbers that go dead when you dial them.

The 10215 number listed for Telkom Spam Quarantine is such a number, while other numbers relating to the service refer you back to 10215.

“This is a real mess at the moment,” the customer said.

Telkom was asked about the issues people have raised. It declined to comment, but did thank subscribers for their feedback.
